Donna Novitsky, Yiftee CEO, commented, "We're excited about our growth and the opportunity that lies ahead. We've hit on a huge opportunity to serve franchise and chain business' needs for mobile promotions that extend their brand messages to their customers' mobile devices – often achieving 10x results over traditional promotions. This new team, with many years of experience in restaurant and retail promotions has hit the ground running and is already having a profound positive impact on ours and our clients' businesses."
"What makes us different from other companies," Novitsky continued, "is our ability to harness Customer Insights for our clients and use these insights to help our clients to finesse their marketing programs. As such, many of our promotions enjoy a redemption rate of between 20-85%, depending upon the offer."
Yiftee's clients include national and regional businesses such as, Auntie Anne's Pretzels, Schlotzsky's, Johnny Rockets, Retro Fitness and Rocket Fizz. Additionally, Yiftee has business partnerships with Perkville rewards and other companies.
